RE: [DMCForum] Lower ball joint replacement

I would like to avoid removing the spring if possible. The shock keeps it 
from decompressing, so as long as I leave it in place, I should be able to 
remove the ball joint assuming there's space for the ball joint press. I'm 
hoping somebody has done this before to confirm it's possible. Otherwise I 
might as well order a set of new bushings if I have to remove the lower 
control arm.

Both lower ball joints are just 2 years old, but one of them has 
prematurely failed. So I only need to replace this one.
